The Maharashtra government has organised a two-day brain storming session on December 1 and 2 on the state’s report card on crime control, investigation, detection, conviction, and the steps to be taken for further improvement.The Home Department officers, under Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ initiative ‘Transform Maharashtra’, will make a series of presentations on achievements, shortfalls and the roadmap for future with regard to crime control.The session will take place a day after the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) released crime data for the year 2016. According to NCRB, Maharashtra ranked third when it comes to reporting of Indian Penal Code (IPC) cases in the country. Uttar Pradesh accounted for 9.5% of the total IPC cases, followed by Madhya Pradesh (8.9%), Maharashtra (8.8%) and Kerala (8.7).Furthermore, Maharashtra tops in cases of assault on women with intent to outrage her modesty with 11,396 registered cases, ranks second in kidnapping and abduction cases with 6,170 cases and comes third in cases of rape with 4,189 cases registered in 2016.A senior officer, who will be present at the two-day session, told DNA: “There has been marked improvement in the crime conviction rate which has surged to over 47% from 9% in 2014, largely due to the increase in forensic facilities. Still, there is scope for improvement. Also, crime against women are being tried in 27 fast-track courts, and the pending ones are going on in 22 such courts.”
